Currently, COVID-19 vaccines are being released to specific populations in three phases (see chart below). At this time, the Youth Clinic does not have COVID-19 vaccines to administer to patients in our office. We are diligently working with the local health department and community hospitals administering COVID-19 vaccines to determine a plan for vaccinating our patients once they enter the eligibility phase. Please continue to check here, our COVID-19 website page, for any updates and changes.
Safety and effectiveness data from clinical trials are still needed before the COVID vaccine will become available for children under the age of 16 years.

*Timeline subject to change based on supply chain. Prioritization subject to change based on data, science, availability.
Note: CDPHE recognizes the Tribal sovereignty of the Ute Mountain Ute and Southern Ute Indian Tribes, and that the Tribes have the authority to determine how vaccine supply will be prioritized for their populations, even if their prioritization scheme is different than what CDPHE recommends. Some federal entities such as the Bureau of Prisons, Department of Defense, Department of State, Veteran’s Hospital Association, and Indian Health Services will be vaccinated by the federal government. Children and pregnant people are not included in this preliminary phased approach; they may be prioritized for vaccine contemporaneously when/if safety and efficacy data are available with the appropriate ACIP recommendation.
